As a long-time Murderino, I very much enjoyed this book. It won't be for everyone. I have made some great friends through the community and the podcast has helped a lot of women learn how to stand up for themselves. And learn that we aren't alone in our weirdness. Also pictured: obligatory cat.

I‘ve heard about their podcast, but I haven‘t listened to it. That said, you don‘t have to follow their podcast to enjoy their book. The book is about their personal lives, how to get on in the world, practice self care, cultural and societal issues, eating disorders, listening to your gut instincts, and the difference between politeness and kindness. They‘re advocates for personal safety and inner strength and worth the read.

This book was SO fun to listen to. Some of the chapters were better than others and I found Karen's humor a bit more up my alley but there were some really valuable points in this, told in a funny, self deprecating, feminist way. I had never heard of their podcast and am not a fan of true crime so I probably won't be listening to that but this autobiographical book was right up my alley.

Congrats @GrilledCheeseSamurai on being part of the six digit club! #sixdigitsamurai

My favorite 2019 read so far (even though I haven't completely finished because I'm trying to savor the book!!!) is Stay Sexy and Don't Get Murdered. I loved their podcast and I enjoy how their humor translates into their writing!
I love the Litsy community, it's like family, friends and a really small gang rolled into one!!

Im so beyond happy I finally sat down to read this book. I would highly recommend it to any Murderino, but also anyone who enjoys memoirs. I was soo excited to read this book but once I got it I was anxious it would be a let down.. Im so happy it was better than I had anticipated! 😊 Have you ever read a duel memoir? If not I suggest you start with this one! 💖📖
Ps. I washed my sheets yesterday... life of pets 😅

Loved this memoir! Recently started listening to their Podcast, and being the nosey person I am. I needed to know more about them. The stories of their lives were relatable and teachable. They gave excellent advise based on their lives, that can be used in your own it different situations. Favorite chapter was "Fuck Politeness". Would suggest to pick up, even if you never listened to their podcast

#BFCr3 Week 2 check-in :
Rough week, my mom was in this hospital this week so everything kinda went to pot. I did get some exercise in, but I did not finish any books. Also, no salads and way to much soda was had 😂
I'm loving the book pictured, and the one one tagged (and the quote from the podcast) Also how adorable is this little baby I visited at the humane society???❤

I hadn't heard of Kilgariff, Hardstark, or their podcast before coming across the book. I'm not likely to start following their podcast now (not interested in more true crime in my daily life than we're already experiencing via our government). However, I whizzed through the book today. [It didn't hurt that I had a puzzle to work on, and that I made time for self-care tonight after a brutal day yesterday.]

I recently saw this book posted by an Instagram influencer, which I can't remember who. But the title caught my eye! However, I felt guilty reading it without hearing their Podcast. Fell in love with their Podcast while waiting for the hold at the library. And I am not falling in love with their book. So far my favorite chapter is "Fuck Politeness". Can't wait to read the rest.

Final Stats for #24B4Monday: 17 hours!

This is the longest I‘ve read for any readathon! My personal best. 😊 I never seem to make it past the 16 hour mark until this weekend! I could‘ve gone longer but Saturday night was pretty much a wash since we had family over. I think it definitely helped that I mixed up the books with picture books and graphic novels, as well as listening to one on audio. Audio was clutch. 😉

Thank you to the hosts! ♥️

jb72 Awesome job! 3mo
Andrew65 Brilliant, well done on getting your best ever total and breaking through that 16 hour barrier. 👏👏👏🙌🍾🥂🎉🎊🥳 I think varying your books and style of books does help in a Readathon. Most days I read from three or four different style of books, and use a bit of audiobooks for when I get tired. 😊 3mo
nelehelen @jb72 @Andrew65 thank you!! So much fun! Can‘t wait for the next one!! 🙌🏼🙌🏼🙌🏼 3mo

Guys I love Georgia and karen and MFM so needless to say I flew through this book. If you listen to the podcast, alot of the stories in the book are things they have mentioned in passing but they just dive a little deeper. I love that they are advocates for mental health awareness

Confession: I didn‘t actually sign up for #24in48. Mostly because I never bother to check in or do any of the challenges. But I‘m off this weekend and we have one more day of unbearable temps so here‘s some physical books I‘d like to get to and/or finish. Plus I‘ve also got some ebooks going. Since I don‘t plan on leaving the house tomorrow, I should be able to make some progress. 😁

CocoReads @theresidentromantic it‘s by Autumn Jones Lake—she writes The Lost Kings series. I‘ve been reading those and I absolutely love them, although she left me with quite the cliffhanger last book and I have to wait a couple more weeks to find out what happens. 3mo
CocoReads @SaturnDoo yeah, I never do the check ins and my weekends have been crazy lately too so I didn‘t know if I‘d be able to spend much time reading. No point signing up if I already know I won‘t be able to give it a good effort. 3mo

Idk guys.. I wasn‘t feeling this one that much. I enjoyed some parts, and some lessons, but not so much others.. books 2/12 of my #bfc2 #bookfitnesschallenge

@wanderinglynn

wanderinglynn I‘ve never listened (or heard of) the podcast, but the title of the book doesn‘t appeal to me. Stay sexy? Really? Maybe it makes more sense if you listen to the podcast? 4mo
guinsgirlreads @wanderinglynn Maybe? I read reviews going both ways, some saying it helped, some saying it was just repetitive 🤷🏻‍♀️! 4mo
callielafleur @wanderinglynn it's how they close out every podcast, by telling the listeners to stay sexy and don't get murdered. The first time they said it was one of the very first episodes, they were trying to close out the show, but couldn't think of anything to say. Karen said stay sexy, and Georgia rushed in to say don't get murdered. Now it's kind of an empowering statement, when you go to a live show, everyone says it at the end. 4mo
wanderinglynn @callielafleur I figured it was part of their podcast. Thanks for letting me know! 😀 (edited) 4mo
